Materials Matter - A Photography Competition by Textile Exchange in Partnership with Magnum Photos
Thursday, September 8, 2022
The theme of our call, Materials Matter, invites entrants to trace everyday textiles back to their roots, reframing their significance in our lives. We are looking to partner with photographers interested in exploring the way we interact with materials, how they make us feel, and how they touch the hands and lands that help to make them. The overall winner will receive a commission to the value of £8,000 for Textile Exchange to document the stories behind some of its members as well as a mentorship with a leading talent from Magnum’s network of photographers. Two runners-up will receive a commission to the value of £4,000 for Textile Exchange and coaching sessions with a Magnum Photographer & Magnum Photos Education team. Applicants should submit at least one photo story (but a maximum of two), consisting of up to 25 images per story. They should also include an artist statement and CV.
